Holiday Message Worth Reading (Seriously!)
This is a holiday message actually worth reading because it contains a deep, personal confession and a link that is pee in your pants funny. First, the deep, personal confession: I don't have a smart phone. Nope, no iPhone or other web-connected mobile device in my pocket. Just a good ol' fashioned flip phone for me. When I speak at hospitals and insurers and whip out my trusty flip phone the reactions range from shock to laughter. Some express disbelief that flip phones still exist! And of course, people ask why...why?!?...I don't have a smart phone. Don't I understand all the fun I'm missing?? I'm taken my fair share of good natured ribbing, and now it's my turn to return the favor with this link.
This link is really my Hanukkah and Christmas present to all my smartphone addicted friends out there. This 3 minute 30 second YouTube video is entitled "Get Off The Phone" produced by the creative duo of Rhett and Link. "Get Off The Phone" has been viewed over 4.6 million times. The video link is truly hysterical, but it's also why this is a holiday message actually worth reading (and sharing). No, not another hollow, throw-away greeting wishing you good cheer with some goofy family picture, but something that will actually help you enjoy and remember the season: Get off your phone! Live in the moment! Be present!
Again, here is the link for the "Get Off The Phone" YouTube Video. Go on...click on it!
I want to personally wish all my readers a very Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and God's rich blessings to you and your family. And if you need that last minute holiday gift, be sure to check out the Sorry Works! Store...we'll get anything you want faster than ol' St. Nick.
